  • START LOOKING ON PINTEREST/BRIDAL MAGAZINES FOR INSPIRATION
  • BOOK YOUR WEDDING VENUE, AND NOTE IF THEY HAVE ANY RESTRICTIONS ON PETALS ALONG THE AISLE, OR OPEN FLAME, ETC.
  • THINK OF YOUR WEDDING THEME, EX: CLASSIC ROMANCE, WOODLAND FAIRYTALE, RUSTIC, COUNTRY, ELEGANT AND GLAMOROUS, MODERN, SHABBY CHIC, ENCHANTED GARDEN, BLACK AND WHITE TIE AFFAIR
  • START THINKING ABOUT FAVORITE FLOWERS AND COLORS
  • OBTAIN COLOR SWATCHES OR PHOTOS OF BRIDE’S GOWN, BRIDESMAID DRESSES, AND GROOM AND GROOMSMEN TIE/VEST COLORS

9 MONTHS BEFORE YOUR EVENT:

  • SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION WITH YOUR FLORIST TO DISCUSS DESIGNS AND ESTABLISH A BUDGET
  • COMPRISE AN ESTIMATED GUEST LIST (THIS WILL DETERMINE BUDGET FOR CENTERPIECES)

  • BOOK YOUR FLORIST, AND MAKE A DOWN PAYMENT

3 MONTHS LEADING UP TO YOUR EVENT:

  • FOLLOW UP WITH FLORIST ABOUT ANY CHANGES TO GUEST LISTS/DÉCOR RENTALS ETC.
